Course instructors will be Kate Wollan, Principal at Nativity of Our Lord Catholic School in St. Paul and Betsy Hand, Principal at St. Ambrose Catholic School in Woodbury.

Participants will receive a training manual, information on how to complete required background checks and paperwork, and guidance on how to connect with schools where they wish to sub. However, completion of the training does not guarantee employment as a substitute. Catholic school principals make all hiring decisions.
